The Evolution of Enterprise Systems and Adaptive Energy ManagementEvolution of Enterprise Systems

Adaptive Energy Management is a platform seated at the crossroads of necessity and strategic thinking. However, we can never appreciate where we are unless we understand where we came from. Adaptive Energy Management did not just rise from the dust, but rather evolved over decades of technological innovation and application of scientific principles. It is an interesting odyssey that is worthy of attention.

Learn from the expert about:

  • The timeline of Enterprise Systems 
  • Major milestones systems have had over the years
  • How Adaptive Energy Management plays a major roll now

Paul Campbell - PhoenixET

Paul Campbell

A highly experienced energy data strategist and founding member of the PhoenixET team focused on enterprise energy decision management, data velocity and applied analytics who has designed suites of analytics that support robust Enterprise Energy Management programs which have delivered significant operational efficiencies and operational cost reductions for clients.

Many of the tactics developed have been adopted as client Standard Operating Procedures for cost control and environmental policy within the framework of our overall EEM strategy. Current endeavors include quantifying cost benefit of data velocity optimization as well as developing fully automated Decision Management systems to handle Fault Detection signal traffic.

In development is a suite of robust programmatic and dynamic methodologies to support demand control software that responds to continually to environmental and climatological conditions seamlessly through machine learning.
